In April 2017 the Apprenticeship Levy will come into force. The government is establishing an Institute for Apprenticeships which will be an employer led independent body that will approve standards and regulate quality. The intention is that only standards and assessments approved by employers through this body will receive funding.
You need to work with an OFSTED approved training provider, the employer can’t be the trainer. The assessment body must be another separate entity such as a professional institution. You pay the training provider through a digital voucher and they then pay the assessment body; you choose both the training provider and the assessment body. The levy can’t be used to pay salary.
See the attachment below for a simplified diagram of the funding model. For more detailed information on the Apprenticeship levy please visit our news page which can be found here.
